Small parts can present choking hazard if accidentally swallowed. Keep small parts away from young children. Discard unneeded small parts and other objects, including packaging materials and plastic bags/sheets to prevent them from being played with by young children, creating the potential risk of suffocation.

When using the Plasma Display

Do not bring your hands, face or objects close to the ventilation holes of the Plasma Display.

• Top of the Plasma Display is usually very hot due to the high temperature of exhaust air being released through the ventilation holes. Burns or personal injuries can happen if any body parts are brought too close. Placing any object near the top of the display could also result in heat damages to the object as well as to the Display if its ventilation holes are blocked.

Be sure to disconnect all cables before moving the

Plasma Display.

• Moving the Display with its cables attached might damage the cables which, in turn, can cause fi re or electric shock.

Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before carrying out any cleaning.

• Electric shocks can result if this is not done.

Clean the power cable regularly to prevent it from becoming dusty.

• Built-up dust on the power cord plug can increase humidity which might damage the insulation and cause fi re. Unplug the cord from the wall outlet and clean it with a dry cloth.

This Plasma Display radiates infrared rays, therefore it may affect other infrared communication equipment.

Install your infrared sensor in a place away from direct or refl ected light from your Plasma Display.

Note:

Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a permanent after-image to remain on the Plasma Display.

Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and images displayed in

NORMAL mode.

AC Power Supply Cord

The Plasma Display is designed to operate on 120 V

AC, 50/60 Hz.

Securely insert the power cord plug as far as it will go.

• If the plug is not fully inserted, heat may be generated which could cause fi re. If the plug is damaged or the wall socket plate is loose, they should not be used.

Do not handle the power cord plug with wet hands.

• Doing so may cause electric shocks.

Do not do anything that might damage the power cable.

When disconnecting the power cable, hold the plug, not the cable.

• Do not make any modifi cations, place heavy objects on, place near hot objects, heat, bend, twist or forcefully pull the power cable. Doing so may cause damage to the power cable which can cause fi re or electric shock.

If damage to the cable is suspected, have it repaired at an Authorized Service Center.

If the Plasma Display will not be used for a long period of time, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

If problems occur during use

If a problem occurs (such as no picture or no sound), or if smoke or an abnormal odor is detected from the

Plasma Display, unplug the power cord immediately.

• Continuous use of the Display under these conditions might cause fi re or permanent damage to the unit.

Have the Display evaluated at an Authorized Service

Center. Services to the Display by any unauthorized personnel are strongly discouraged due to its high voltage dangerous nature.

If water or foreign objects get inside the Plasma Display, if the Plasma Display is dropped, or if the cabinet becomes damaged, disconnect the power cord plug immediately.

• A short may occur, which could cause fi re. Contact an

Authorized Service Center for any repairs that need to be made.

Maintenance

The front of the display panel has been specially treated. Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.

• If the surface is particularly dirty, wipe with a soft, lint-free cloth which has been soaked in pure water or water to which a small amount of neutral detergent has been added, and then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth of the same type until the surface is dry.

• Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fi ngernails or other hard objects, otherwise the surface may become damaged. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner, otherwise the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.

If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.

• If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water to which a small amount of neutral detergent has been added and then wring the cloth dry. Use this cloth to wipe the cabinet, and then wipe it dry with a dry cloth.

• Do not allow any detergent to come into direct contact with the surface of the Plasma Display. If water droplets get inside the unit, operating problems may result.

• Avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner, otherwise the quality of the cabinet surface may be adversely affected or the coating may peel off. Furthermore, do not leave it for long periods in contact with articles made from rubber or PVC.

For a 4:3 image

The display will automatically become enlarged (depending on the picture source), allowing you to view the picture at its maximum size.

Notes:

• Panasonic AUTO mode is designed to automatically adjust the aspect ratio to handle a mix of 16:9 and 4:3 program material. Certain 4:3 program material, such as stock market data screens, may occasionally cause the image size to change unexpectedly. When viewing such programs, it is recommended that the ASPECT be set to NORMAL.

• If adjusting the PICTURE V-POS/V-SIZE in Panasonic AUTO with FULL mode, the adjustment is not memorized. When exiting the mode, the screen will return to a former adjustment.

• Panasonic AUTO can not be selected while TY-FB9BD (optional BNC

Dual Video Terminal Board) is installed.

Note: Do not allow the picture to be displayed in NORMAL mode for an extended period, as this can cause a permanent after-image to remain on the Plasma Display Panel.

No remote control operations can be performed.

Check whether the batteries have discharged completely and, if they have not, whether they were inserted properly.

Check whether the remote control sensor is exposed to an outdoor light or a strong fl uorescent light.

Check whether the remote control designed specifi cally for use with the unit is being used.

(The unit cannot be operated by any other remote control.)

A cracking sound is sometimes heard from the unit.

If there is nothing wrong with the picture or sound, this is the sound of the cabinet undergoing very slight contractions in response to changes in the room temperature. There are no adverse effects on the performance or other aspects.

The top or bottom of the picture on the screen is cut off when I use the zoom function.

Adjust the position of the picture on the screen.

Areas at the top and bottom of the screen where the image is missing appear when I use the zoom function.

When using a video software program (such as a cinema size program) with a screen wider than one in the 16:9 mode, blank areas separate from the images are formed at the top and bottom of the screen.

I can hear sounds coming from inside the unit.

When the power is turned on, a sound of the display panel being driven may be heard: This is normal and not indicative of malfunctioning.

This Plasma Display uses special image processing. Hence a slight time lag may occur between image and audio, depending on the type of input signal. However, this is not a malfunction.

Plasma Display panel

Symptoms

The screen darkens slightly when bright pictures with minimal movements are shown.

It takes a while for the picture to appear.

The edges of the images fl icker.

Check

The screen will darken slightly when photos, still images of a computer or other pictures with minimal movements are shown for an extended period. This is done to reduce after-image on the screen and the shortening of the screen’s service life: It is normal and not indicative of malfunctioning.

The unit digitally processes the various signals in order to reproduce esthetically pleasing images. As such, it sometimes takes a few moments for the picture to appear when the power has been turned on, when the input has been switched or when the images for the main picture and sub picture on the two screens are swapped.

Due to the characteristics of the system used to drive the panel, the edges may appear to fl icker in the fast-moving parts of the images: This is normal and not indicative of malfunctioning.

The brightness on both sides of images in NORMAL mode changes.

Some parts of the screen do not light up.

When viewing the side panels at the “BRIGHT” or “MID” setting, the brightness on both sides may change depending on the kind of program shown: This is normal and not indicative of malfunctioning.

The plasma display panel is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision technology, however, sometimes some parts of the screen may be missing picture elements or have luminous spots. This is not a malfunction.

After-images appear

Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a permanent after-image to remain on the Plasma Display.

Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and images displayed in NORMAL mode.

Note:

The permanent after-image on the Plasma Display resulting from fi xed image use is not an operating defect and as such is not covered by the Warranty.

This product is not designed to display fi xed images for extended periods of time.

Whirring sounds can be heard from the display unit.

The display unit is fi tted with a cooling fan to dissipate heat generated during normal use. The whirring sound is caused by rotation of the fan and is not a malfunction.

LIMITED WARRANTY STATEMENT

Panasonic Canada Inc. (also known as PCI) warrants this product to be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use during the applicable warranty coverage period described below.
